Birchbox review January, 2017 + FIRST BOX $5!

Birchbox is a subscription box that delivers five beauty samples tailored to your skin, hair, and style every month.


They have a beauty profile for you to fill out on their site, and choose products for you specifically based off your answers.



The Goods

  1. Protect & Oil – Beauty Protector. Regular price: $2.15


This multitasking oil defends against UV rays and breakage (without greasy residue). Apply to dry hair for a lightweight shine or work through ends to protect from heat and damage. This is the first hair oil I’ve tried that is applied to dry hair (mine always say wet hair), and I was suspicious this would leave a residue. Surprisingly though, it completely absorbed and left my hair feeling soft and clean, success!

  1. Skinny Liquid Eyeliner – Eyeko. Regular price: $10.30


From the go-to UK makeup brand, this user-friendly liquid liner goes on velvety smooth and features a pen-style applicator to control the thickness of your eyeliner look. I got Eyeko “eye do” eyeliner in an Allure box once that I loved, and this “skinny” Eyeko liner is identical in terms of color and shape of tip, like I’m pretty sure they are the same thing lol. Luckily though I love this eyeliner, it makes drawing cat eyes a breeze!


  1. Candlenut Body Crème – Juara. Regular price: $1.60


This velvety candlenut oil formula, inspired by Balinese recipes, penetrates deep into dry, rough skin for instant, nongreasy softness that lasts. This body crème smells amazing, light and fresh. It absorbed completely into my skin and left it feeling as soft as silk! I just wish the sample was bigger.

  1. Prep-N-Glow Cloths – NuFace. Regular price: $1.00


These double-sided wipes clean, exfoliate, and hydrate. The soft lace cotton side removes makeup while the other gently exfoliates with microdots to reveal glowy skin. I used this to remove my makeup before I went tanning, and one wipe completely cleaned all of my makeup off, with the exfoliating side clearing out any dead skin for fresh tan-ready skin. It left my face smooth and moisturized, which is important when I’m drying out my skin tanning.

  1. BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator – Vasanti. Regular price: $5.65


Papaya enzymes work to break down dead cells and even out skin tone while dermatologist-approved microderm crystals fade fine lines and acne scars. Finally, aloe vera, coconut, and vitamins B and E nourish freshly exfoliated skin to keep it free from redness or irritation, making it look like you just got a facial. This felt nice to use in the shower, the exfoliation was gentle and could be used even on sensitive skin, unlike some rougher cleansers. Yet it still effectively removed any dead skin cells and left my skin soft and smooth.


The products in this months box are worth about $20.07. This isn’t bad for a $10.00/mo subscription! If you love high quality skincare products, Birchbox is definitely the box for you!  I am happy with this months box, I love the eyeliner and face cleanser, and I’m definitely buying more of the prep-n-glow cloths!
